The Oregon Student Access Commission (OSAC), established by the Oregon Legislature in 1959 as the Oregon Student Assistance Commission, is primarily charged with administering student financial aid programs, and through its Office of Degree Authorization, authorizing and regulating the granting of degrees by institutions within the U.S. state of Oregon.

On January 1, 2012, the Oregon Student Assistance Commission assumed its new name, the Oregon Student Access Commission.[1] Under state legislation enacted in 2011, the Office of Degree Authorization is scheduled to move into the new Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission when that entity comes into existence on July 1, 2012.[2][3][4]
